A Fish In The River - Poem by Rajesh Thankappan

A fish in the river
Said to another,
Where are you going
O my big brother?

The other fish said,
I am going to the sea
If you wish to
You can follow me.

So they swam
Together to the sea
And found the water there
To be very salty.

    Sometimes, leaving one's own settlement and going to another place, thinking that better prospects await there can be foolish! What we find there may be unpleasant realities like the fish that travelled from fresh water to the salty waters of the sea! Enjoyed this greatly metaphorical write! (Report) Reply
